Advanced Surface Inspection Systems for High-Speed Gypsum Board Lines

Vision Engineering, Inc. offers the most advanced surface inspections in the industry. With features such as defect classification, advanced cockle detection, extensive communications options and extremely high speed capabilities, our surface inspections are the smart choice for Gypsum Wallboard Inspection.

Surface Defect Detection and Classification
Tears and Peelers Indentions Scratches
Blisters Slime & Water Spots Wrinkled Paper


Virtually all visible surface defects can be detected. Some of the more common examples are shown above. With VEI’s classification module, surface defects are also classified as they are detected. Classification provides enormous benefits when determining the source of the defects. Systems ship with typical classification settings that can be modified by the customer to suit their needs.


Advanced Cockle Detection


VEI’s Surface Inspection Systems also include advanced cockle detection tools. A roughness score is generated for each inspection. As the roughness of the board (including cockling, paper texture, and surface debris) increases, the score also increases. Roughness scores are plotted on the screen for quick reference. Warning and failure limits are also available to generate alarms.
